Red Sox were one of a few teams out to watch Cole Hamels earlier this week. 

The Red Sox are out of contention, and perhaps working out a deal for Hamels is more appealing than resigning Jon Lester to a long-term deal. Hamels is owed $22.5 million/ year, so any team looking to add the southpaw will need deep pockets, and likely a deep farm as well. ANALYST:

Todd Cunningham went 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI against Arizona on Tuesday.

After going hitless in his last 16 at-bats, Cunningham had a nice bounce back game on Tuesday. Assuming he continues to get regular playing time, you can count on some speed from Cunningham. But given his minor league track record, it’s hard to count on other production from him. Analysis: Brett Talley

Nick Markakis went 2-for-4 with two doubles, a run and an RBI against Arizona on Tuesday

Markakis has yet to leave the yard this year and has just one steal. His batting average (.299) is helpful, but his BABIP is a bit high, and something in the .270 range seems more reasonable going forward. So a little average and maybe a few runs is really all Markakis has to offer. Some power will come at some point, but it may not be worth waiting on. Analysis: Brett Talley

Freddie Freeman went 1-for-4 with two runs and a steal against Arizona on Tuesday.

Freeman’s batted ball profile is a site to behold. You simply don’t see hitters that hit line drives as frequently and consistently as Freeman does. It caps his home run upside in the low-to-mid 20’s, but it also means he can hit for plenty of average despite striking out a bit much. Analysis: Brett Talley

Paul Goldschmidt went 1-for-1 with a double and an RBI along with four walks against Atlanta on Tuesday.

Four walks! That bumps Goldy’s OBP up to .471. He’s on pace to surpass 40 home runs and 20 steals. His .400 BABIP won’t hold, but given that Goldy is hitting .355, you can still expect him to hit .300 when his BABIP trends toward his .352 career BABIP. You could maybe argue Bryce Harper has been as good as Goldschmidt this year, but it would be hard to make a convincing argument for anyone other than Goldy as best hitter in baseball right now. Analysis: Brett Talley

A.J. Pollock went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI against Atlanta on Tuesday.

Pollock gives you solid batting average and is on pace for 30+ steals. He also has a shot at getting to 15 home runs, and either his runs or RBI production should be helpful depending on where he ends up in the lineup most.  Analysis: Brett Talley

Ender Inciarte went 1-for-3 with two runs, two RBI, two walks and two steals against Atlanta on Tuesday.

Inciarte is on pace for 20 steals and 80+ runs with a good batting average. He doesn’t walk much so it’s possible he could lose his spot atop the order, which would obviously hurt his run production. But Inciarte is returning excellent value on his draft day price and should continue to do so. Analysis: Brett Talley

Brad Ziegler recorded his fourth save of the season against Atlanta on Tuesday allowing one hit.

Ziegler is an unconventional closer, but he keeps finding his way back into that role. He keeps the ball on the ground at an extremely high rate and thus keeps the ball in the park, so he’s not prone to a blow up, which is a desirable trait for a closer. Analysis: Brett Talley

Shelby Miller allowed four runs and six hits with six walks and two strikeouts in 4 1/3 innings against Arizona on Tuesday.

Miller entered Tuesday’s game with a 1.48 ERA and a 3.86 xFIP, and the gap somewhat narrowed with Tuesday’s outing but a two-plus run gap still exists between his ERA and xFIP. With a roughly 2:1 K:BB ratio and below average strikeout and walk rates, Miller has been extremely lucky to post the numbers he has at the moment. Now is the time to sell high. He’ll go again on Monday against the Padres. Analysis: Brett Talley
